Family Farm

My grandparents were farmers in Connecticut. They started out raising chickens and eggs, but by the time I was born were growing potatoes, tobacco (the leaves that were used for the outside wrapper of Cuban cigars), and raising Herefords for beef.

My mother donated some of the land to the Northern Connecticut Land Trust where some of the land is being used for chestnut tree research.

My cousin Nancy still runs the farm where she raises all-natural grass fed beef, heritage pork, farm-fresh eggs, and pick-your-own strawberries as well as pumpkins and an annual corn maze.
